A letter about Sound City from Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl, the famed frontman of Foo Fighters and drummer of Nirvana, will direct and produce a music documentary, "Sound City," on the legendary music studio.  From the trailer -- posted below -- it already looks frenetic and chock full of self-congratulatory interviews.  But for fans of the infamous recording studio in Van Nuys, California, Grohl's "Sound City" is sure to provide an insider's perspective.

Last year, Grohl purchased the legendary Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City studios.  First built in 1972, the studio is considered to have the foremost set of analog recording equipment.  Sound City's roster of musicians speak to its famed quality; the artists recorded in the space include Neil Young, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses, Rage Against the Machine, Metallica, and Fleetwood Mac. Nirvana recorded their breakout and landscape-changing album "Nevermind" in Sound City in 1991, thus cementing Grohl's lasting relationship to the studio.

Roswell Films, a division of the Roswell Records label that releases Foo Fighters music, will distribute the film. More information on "Sound City" here.
